Default Genuine parts for a 1982 343

Is it possible to get genuine service parts for a 1.4 343 - 1982?

I've tried FRF, Brookehouse (sp) and PartsForVolvoOnline with little success, FRF can provide an oil filter and spark plugs.

Any suggestions? Or do I need to go with non genuine stuff?

This is quite a rare car which has VERY low miles and has been off the road for nearly 25 years, given what it is I would like to keep it as original as possible.

Thanks in advance

Andy

Genuine parts are limited to those that crossover to Swedish built models as Volvo no longer supply parts for the Dutch built cars.

For spares it is only myself, born built and dafhobby that are making new parts for the 300 series.

Thanks guys - ended up going with the local motor factors, it's just service parts mainly, FRF can supply the genuine oil filter, so will probably get that for appearances.

The car isn't mine, it belongs to irishcarfan on here, I don't want to steal his thunder but I'm sure he will put pic's up once he has the car home.

It WILL be worth the wait, I promise!
